IV. Student Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of this course, a student will be able to:

The student will learn and apply techniques of integration to improper integrals, arc length, area of a surface revolution, and other real-world applications. The student will reinforce and extend their trigonometric knowledge of parametric equations to polar calculus and conic sections. They will apply that knowledge to skill-based and real-world problems. The student will learn about sequences, series and techniques for determining convergence and divergence. They will apply those techniques to analyze and evaluate power, Taylor, and Maclaurin series representations.
